Directions and Parking
The Uncamp will be held in the CyberInfrastructure Building (CIB) at the south end of the Technology Corridor at Indiana University, 2719 E 10th St, Bloomington, IN .

On maps (google, yahoo, mapquest) you will see 1 or 2 entrances to East University Road accessible via 10th St. The entrance closest to 10th St. is no longer there, but the next drive away from 10th St. (not on any maps yet) is the entrance into the complex. Park in any spot in the parking lot. Parking is free for participants. You will not need a parking pass to park in Indiana University parking spots near CIB, IC or the University Gymnasium. Follow signs to the CIB to check-in and receive your nametag, etc.
